Do you know how to roll the perfect joint? There is no reason to feel embarrassed if you have no idea how. As a matter of fact, you might be quite surprised by how many regular cannabis users don’t know how to properly roll a joint. Here are all the joint rolling tips that you will ever need to know!

How to Roll a Joint Step By Step Guide

The easiest way to roll a joint is to break the entire process up into a few, easy-to-manage steps.

  1. Get the Materials Ready

The items you need to be able to roll a joint include:

  • Dried, ready-to-use marijuana
  • Joint rolling papers
  • Filter/crutch cardboard (optional)
  • Marijuana grinder (optional)
  • Rolling tray (optional)
  • Packing tool, such as a key or a pen (optional)

As you can see, you don’t really need much. But keep in mind that the more “optional” items you have at your disposal, the easier it will be to roll the perfect joint.

 how to roll a joint step by step

  1. Prepare the Weed

Obviously, you cannot smoke marijuana buds without breaking them up properly. You can break down weed by hand, by tearing or crumbling the buds apart into small pieces so that air can pass through the joint for easy inhalation. However, the quickest and most effective way to break down weed is to use a marijuana grinder. Doing so will also help keep your hands from getting sticky so that you can more easily manipulate the cannabis and rolling papers.

  1. Construct the Filter/Crutch

This step is completely optional. However, most people (especially beginners) should take the time to make a filter. Doing so can vastly enhance the overall joint smoking experience. Get a thin, pliable piece of cardboard (such as a business card) and roll it into a tube. The filter shouldn’t be too long, but it should be about as thick as you want your joint to be.

  1. Put Weed Into the Rolling Paper

Open the paper and put the crutch at one end of the paper. Fill the rest of the paper up with broken-down marijuana. Cradle the paper and start to shape the joint with your fingers. As you do this, the weed will tend to move around. Make sure you pack down the cannabis by pinching the edges of the paper and rolling it back and forth. This will help keep your joint tight and stable.

  1. Roll The Joint

This final part of the process will define the quality of your joint. Once the weed is packed, tightly, tuck the unglued side of the paper over the weed. Then, without losing pressure, maneuver the glued side over the previously tucked side.

Gently lick the glue edge once the joint feels right and seal the joint. Depending on what works best, you can seal the joint at once or section by section. If the joint seems loose or some of the marijuana starts to fall out, you can use the packing tool to push and adjust the weed until you are satisfied. Now all you have to do is to light and smoke your joint!
